to read that part of the document. and lastly, this is the first round of 2016, and it was obvious >> colby talking about demagoguery. that clip is the ultimate in demagoguery. at the end she says, our job is to find out what happened. well, to find out what happened, you have to know whether this was a spontaneous, 1-off denstration gone awry, or was in the leading edge of a resurgence of al qaeda in north africa, which would later impact mali and create dead americans and others in algeria. that is the essence of finding out what happened. yet, in the have second before she says, what difference does it make if it was a spontaneous demonstration or something else? that is a complete contradiction. there is not anybody that pointed it out. the essence of what happened is, is this a resurgence of al qaeda, and w is that the administration went weeks and weeks with attending it had to do with a video, when there was no demonstration in the first place? >> if i am not mistaken, the president, the next day, did say it was an act of terror. >> he did not. >> he said it in the rose gar
. they're opposed to iraq. lastly saddam hussein was a stable regime and it hadn't in recent years been aggressive. but nonetheless, if you're sitting in london or paris, you're thinking, oh, my god, another intervention at a time when our military is losing strength, not gaining strength. >> exactly. and it's interesting to see the u.s. response being very cautious. we'll hear from the president on monday whether he makes a big policy statement on this, perhaps unlikely. but for the bridge stickersel here and to go back to david cameron, wa kind of pressure is on him to formulate a response here? not only in this event, but for the next round of activity to unfold. >> it's a very fast-moving situation. i think their first response was to try to be supportive to -- not too supportive, send a couple of planes, send our own troops. however, if a lot of troops have been killed in the algerian situation, if the mali thing gets out of hand, there may be pressure to rachet up the response. president obama's response is incredibly important. all of the signals we've been getting from the white
can continue to flow. lastly, the president began his address with this declare tiff statement. >> raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> reporter: the statement is true. while the debt ceiling enhances our ability to spend, federal budget resolutions originate where the congress must ultimately approve them. what will happen if the congress doesn't move to raise the debt ceiling? there's two possible scenarios. the government waits until it has enough money to pay all its obligations for a single day and then it sends out payments late or, two, it can pick and choose winners until the situation gets resolved. president obama's warning of a near total government shutdown is untrue. sam brock, nbc bay area news. >>> some good insight there. president obama also addressed gun control. he wants universal background checks and a ban on assault rifles. nbc bay area's janelle wang has more in our world tonight. >>> tomorrow vice president joe biden is expected to bring simi
. >> lastly, unlike the unhappy guys in the movie "office space" embrace all sorts of technology. >> by the year 2020, over 75% of jobs will have a technology component. they think that is very important for people to understand for longevity and for employment in the future. >> staying employed this year will be easier in some fields than in others, of course. for example, jobs in health care and business services like sales are expected to be plentiful. >> as 2013 goes on, the job market is predicted to pick up steam. setting the stage for better days in the next new year. tom foreman, cnn, washington. >>> well, living in fear, trying to escape, and suffering from more than just war. we take you inside one refugee camp along the turkey/syria border where people are trying to escape bombs and gunfire are now faced with a different kind of catastrophe. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only
quality assurance. third, poor security. fourth, questionable sustainability. lastly, corruption. let's talk about inadequate planning. we are at risk now of wasting billions of dollars if the agencies charged with implementing new programs and constructing new facility is to not first answer some basic questions. i have been in washington 30 something years. i almost fell off the stage. i came from ohio. maybe i keep this midwestern approach to issues, sort of basic simple questions that you would ask if you were buying a house, buying a car, or trying to lecture your daughter on what school to attend. sort of simple questions, logical questions. these questions are not being asked first -- are not being answered, i should say, in afghanistan. questions such as, are these programs and buildings needed? have you asked the afghans if they want them? have you coordinated it with any of the other organizations working for either of the u.s. government or the international community? have we designed them to meet any specific need that the afghans have? and have redesigned them in such a
somewhere and she's looking dazzling now. carl, lastly as we go, for people who want more tips, obviously, a lot of woman in our newsroom asks me questions to ask you. where do they turn. >> carl require makeup arti artist.com and i work at george salon at the four seasons. >> all right, makeup artist to the stars, ashley you look fabulous. thank you, with that said got to run. >>> it's 11:27. >>> coming up in the next half hour, new information released just this morning from the faa. on why the agency is taking a close look at the safety of boeing 787s. >>> and new divide lines for a popular drug millions of people take. why it applies to women only. >>> and storm team4 meterologist tom kierein is back and he changes to the weekend forecast is 70 degrees still a >>> a man is in custody two days after escaping from a hospital ward in tacoma park. the 27-year-old turned himself into police this morning many rockville and he escaped wednesday from washington adventist hospital and police were on heightened alert because he's considered dangerous. >>> the faa is look closely at boeing's new
theft and tend hiring of future unauthorized workers and lastly, we establish an improved process for e admitting future workers to serve our work force needs while protecting all workers. other bipartisan senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals. but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there is more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act. but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. we recognize that in order to pass bipartisan legislation none of us can get everything we want. that's why our framework says we can address the status of people living here illegally whil
. the saudis would line the deserts with arrows saying this way. lastly, i'm running out of time, i hope, perhaps you will resist from applauding at six-minute mark, or at least the 60% who are not sympathetic to our view and drown out the others. this is a regime that has threatened to annihilate israel and expressed its intentions to do so. we are relying on deterrence because it worked in the cold war. the cold war was different. the target of the united states was a continental nation, israel is a one bomb country. [cheers and applause] i commend you. i will stop here and say there is a radical difference between the soviet -- u.s. relationship. you will not ask jews in israel to rely on deterrence in this kind of situation. thank you very much. >> charles, if it makes you better henry kissinger re did not get away with it either. >> thank you for that introduction. it is a -- introduction it is a pleasure being here. it goes without saying that the world would be better if iran does not become a nuclear arms state. achieving that goal should be our principle priority going forward.
. lastly, i think this is an opportunity for this committee to finally do the work that are it should have been doing for years. when you read the arb report and you realize that we have never done an authorization of the state department in the six years that i've been here, we've never looked at how foreign aid has been spent. we've never done a top to bottom review. i know that is something that people like you, who come to this position, look at as something that is healthy and can be done in partnership. i know there was some mention of cost, and i was really disappointed with the arb when the first thing that came out of the mouths of two people that i respect was money, money, money. the fact is, this committee would have no idea whether the appropriate amount of money is being spent, or if that could have prevented what happened in benghazi, because we've never done an authorization. soy look at this as a tremendous opportunity, and i want to close again by thanking you for your service, thanking you for your friendship, thanking you for your transparency, and i certainly look forw
casualty. >> and lastly, i want to ask you, france has a lot of important areas in that region, specifically pertaining to their uranium, they extract from some of those countries. i know that french special forces have been right in niger. they immediately go to where these rich natural resources exist in these countries that they need. are you worried about this becoming sort of an economic war, kind of like what we saw in iraq for oil, this idea of these imperialists coming to get the resources and that's what al qaeda can use as a real, a recruiting tool? >> well, luke, you make a great point. we're only going to achieve security and stability in mali and niger, in mowauritania, in this whole region if we address and help those governments address those long-standing internal disputes. it's because of 50 years of complaints and disputes in northern mali that this whole destabilization of mali began in the first place. we have to have elections that restore a legitimate democratic government in mali and the malian government itself needs to address the real concerns and comp
whatever it is that you don't want to do. >> why do you think, lastly, people are unable to stick with those resolutions? >> i think they don't give it enough time, first of all and habits take a long time to change so you really want to stick with it over a sustained period of time. some people have a hard time even getting out of the galt and i think it's because, obviously, these things are hard to do. if it were not hard to do we'd all be doing them and they wouldn't have to be new year's resolutions. >> we'd all be perfect. we can start by practice what can we preach in 2013. thank you, doctor. >> thanks, keith. >>> big gains on wall street. we'll check in with cnbc courtney regan. she has more on that and the rest of the day's business headlines. hi, courtney. >> reporter: good morning. stocks are soaring on this live there deal, markets reassured by the uncertainty that's no dissipating. the dow is up about 230 points and a percentage basis, tech-heavy nasdaq is leading the gains with the best inter day gain in six months. the first trading day of the year does seem to be a
sustainability and lastly, corruption. let's talk about inadequate planning. we are at risk now of wasting billions of dollars if the agencies charged with implementing new programs and constructing new facilities do not first answer some basic questions. now i have been in washington for 30 some years. i almost fell off the stage. [laughter] i came from ohio. and maybe i keep this midwestern approach to issues, the basic simple questions that you would ask if you are buying a house, buying a car or trying to lecture your daughter on what school to go to. simple questions, logical questions. these questions aren't being asked or i should say aren't being answered in afghanistan. questions such as are these programs and buildings needed? have you asked the afghans if they want them? have you coordinated with any of the other organizations working for either the u.s. government or the international community? have we designed them to meet any specific needs that the afghans have? and have we designed them in such a way that they can be sustainable in the future? quite often, we find the answ
government more effect days. lastly, act in a manner we are not ashamed of her children watching because they are. i'm taking these principles to heart and we party hit the ground running to create better jobs, better schools and a more effective government. a company recently came to montana and said goodbye to the kid a manufacturing facility in great falls, but they needed a workforce ready for the high-tech bidding they do. they are exactly the kind we should have here in montana. that's why we've been working with great boss college, training workers to fill these jobs in this company is now committed to moving to the electric city. [cheers and applause] now, as part of the new program, will also ensure that high schools in great falls can graduate with the certificates that would make them attractive candidates for this company as well. not only is it better jobs, the better education. i pledge to bring a more effective government to montana and we do not already as well. tomorrow for the first time after, montana's check book will be online.

identify troubled individuals earlier and get them the help that they need. lastly, in addition to -- in addition, i personally support the creation of a national commission on domestic terrorism, violence and crime in america. . it would examine the issues of violent crime and prevention and look at what government can do on a local, state, and national level to prevent attacks such as those we witnessed in newtown, aurora, tucson and virginia tech. yesterday, as mayor of philadelphia, i also announced and put forward for our city something i refer to now as the sandy hook principles. these principles are a call to action for corporations to heed the basic core values of american citizens in promoting the health, safety, and well being of our communities. the objective of these is to establish a baseline standard for responsible conduct of their business. as i share these principles with many other mayors from around the country, we expect to be reviewing and discussing them in the days ahead. let me be very clear, however. strengthening our gun laws should not have to wait for
the saudis would line the desert with directional arrows saying this way to tehran. now, lastly, and i'm running out of time. i hope perhaps you'll desist from applauding at the six minute mark or at least the 60% of you who aren't sympathetic to our view -- who are sympathetic to our view and drown out the others. is that this is a regime that has threatened to inile late israel and express its intentions to do so. we are our -- we have to rely on deterrence because it worked on the cold war. it was radically different. it was not existential. and the target the united states was a continental nation of great size israel is a one-bomb country. that's a very strong 27% i commend you on your energy there. i will stop here and say there's a radical difference between the soviet-u.s. relationship and relationship of israel and iran. and you will not ask 6 million jews in israel to rely on their existence on deterrents in this kind of situation. thank you very much. >> charles if i would it would make you feel any better henry kissinger didn't get away with it, either. >> good evening. tha
. >> and lastly, will the federal establishment be as sensitive to the economic issues? >> that's an important set of questions. i don't talk about the federal system as much because they're on the opposite trajectory. so the federal system, as was just mentioned, is actually expanding. the bureau of prisons budget actually expanded this past year. it is going kind of counter to the direction that states are going in, and the aclu sponsored a couple of hearings in congress where states leaders, from states that i do have enacted significant reform, presented the story of what had happened in their state and trying to kind of motivate reform in the federal system. the reality is that the economic pressures facing the states instead of governments don't exist in the same way as they do with the federal government. so the federal government isn't feeling that same bench. state governments have to balance their budgets. the federal government doesn't, and so there are few pressures on the federal government to actually have to deal with this as a cost-saving measure. the reality is as i think the stat
transparency and accountability to the public. [applause] lastly, it was abraham lincoln said that we must quote, care for him to who have borne the battle. in indiana, our veterans are hurt. and they need our help. believe it or not, post 9/11 veterans have an unemployment rate higher than the national average. we have to do better. we owe these heroes nothing less. he graduated in 2006, he decided to join the army in iraq and afghanistan for his first deployment in 2001. one night the convoy came under attack in a rocket propelled grenade push the copperplate through, basically destroying his left leg. nevertheless, he was able to hold a 250-pound door in place, saving the lives of likely everyone in the vehicle. he has had two dozen surgeries since and most recently was a year ago. last fall he got married and did his first 5k. big tim is an american hero. he is with us tonight.

would line the desert with directional ar o'o's saying -- arrows saying this way to tehran. now, lastly, and i'm running out of time, i hope perhaps you'll resist from applauding at the six-minute mark or at least the 60% of who you are sympathetic to our view. [laughter] drown out the others. is that this is a regime that has threatened to anye light israel and expressed -- annihilate israel and has expressed its intention to do so. we have to rely on deterrence because it worked in the cold war. the cold war was radically different. the soviets had an ideological argument with the united states. it was not ex stention. and the target. united states was a continental nation of great size. israel is a one-bomb country. [applause] that's a very strong 27th -- 27%. i commend you on your energy. i will stop here and say there's a radical difference between the soviet-u.s. relationship and the relationship with israel and iran and you will not ask six million jews in israel to rely for their existence on deterrence in this kind of situation. thank you very much. [applause] >> if it makes yo
their obligations and following the law and regulations and regulations that are established and lastly, the physical layout has to be revisited. there has to the maximum number of precincts that the location can only hold and to add on with that, you have to be prepared to increase the size of the staff and machines and processes and being able to scale up for the larger locations you might have so i think that is important and one of the areas we need to address, one size doesn't fit all. we don't look at one system for every location. we need to make sure we look at the size of the location as well as management of the precinctss within the location. thank you. >> one thing i would like you to consider in the closing statement is advice that you would give to other jurisdictions that find themselves in a battleground state. earlier today we heard there were ten states that were identified as meeting that criteria. for some like ohio, pennsylvania, cloud ground in many ways that there were some state foot for the first time found themselves under the scrutiny you referred to particula
't seen, charles alluded to this lastly, are the social dislocation talks of this. that is to say, when we started "the weekly standard" in 1995, the worst, very good piece, but would make you laugh if you would like to look at it was by a criminologist and sociologist was called here come the super predators. and the argument was that we had created a generation of 17-year-olds, youth, whose fathers had been in prison, never seen a strong family, none of that. and basically they were on the way to creating a crime wave the likes of which we had never seen. that is one of the great humbling moments of my life as an editor. wonderful piece, perfectly argued and it made absolute sense at the time that we published it. and it was so wildly wrong that it's not 18 years later. you know, we have now lived through a 20 year decline in crime. new york city last week, not one person was killed last week in new york city. that sounds like you should celebrate something like that. >> that's a big. >> john has been out of town. >> that's right. someone mispronounce my name and i was -- but it's a real
employer or position or perhaps it's something down the road. >> lastly -- unlike the unhappy guys in the movie office space, embrace all sorts of technology. >> by the year 2020, over 75% of jobs will have a technology component. i think that's important for people to understand for longevity and employment of the future. >> staying employed this year will be easier in some fields than in others. for example, jobs in health care and business services like sales are expected to be plentiful. as 2013 goes on, the job market is predicted to pick up steam. setting the stage for better days in the next new year. cnn, washington. >> preparing to fly a plane to new york is pulled from the cockpit for smelling like alcohol. we are following the development. stay with us. you are in "the situation room." s customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this
years serving for u.s.a. and lastly, four years you count or you don't want. there is no information about where or when the photos were taken. his wife says it's not clear why they were sent. >> i have no idea what purpose they serve, which is why we held onto them so long. i'm releasing them now to make sure that people are aware that he is still in someone's custody, and i believe it's the iranians and has not been released, and it is almost six years an is still not home with his family. >> reporter: u.s. officials also believe that he is being held by iran. he was working as a private investigator and last seen on an iranian island before he disappeared. u.s. investigators say the expertise used to cover up the track of the email sender looks like the work of professionals, such as iran's intelligence and security service. iran meanwhile has repeatedly denied any involvement in the abduction. his former employer the f.b.i. has posted a million dollar reward for information leading to his return. they say the agency is quote, doing all we can to bring bob home safe. next month hi
there. you have independent forensic corroboration to a great extent she is the perpetrator. lastly, self-defense, again, i apologize, since i have a defense hat on, but 27 stabs can't be self-defense. jenna: we talked about this before, faith. when you look at this woman, and the murder is gruesome, one could wonder if the jurors, this body stayed in the house for five days. no one found this body. did she work by herself or is there another twist as you're kind of searching to see, you know, innocent until proven guilty? >> i can understand jurors asking those questions because there were roommates there. they weren't living there while the victim was dead in the home. but at the end. day it goes back to, you have to look at the evidence. people, you have, there are some questions. you want so many answers but you have to focus them at the end of the day on what the issues really are. jenna: really quick here, doug, as a defense attorney. >> yes. jenna: how would you prove that she did this in self-defense? what is going to be your move? >> well the good news on the defense side h
's in the constitution but privacy a big issue for the country. lastly, a number of people, i won't say of your ilk, but in law enforcement, county sheriffs around the country saying we're just not going to follow what the president's laws are. we're not going to enforce them. what do you make of that and how do you react to your counter parts that say that? >> it's federal law,io owioubvi enforced -- i assume most share of the will follow the law -- >> how about confiscation? report to law enforcement and they're supposed to confiscate them. if the sheriffs say, that's a seconds amendment infraction. not going to do it. >> that's down the road. we need a piece of legislation that passes and see. we can't predict. >> you have a lot to read. we're sorting through this. hope you can come back and we can dig through this as we learn about what the new congress' measures will contain. thank you, mr. kelly. good to see you. >>> commissioner kel he has b e working with mayor bloomberg. he will join anderson cooper tonight. sharp at 8:00 p.m. tonight. >>> iran's image in the western world, sponsors terror
. third, poor security. fourth, questionable sustainability and lastly, corruption. talk about inadequate planning. we are. we are at a risk billions of dollars if the agencies charged with implementing new programs and can start two new facilities do not first answer some basic questions. i've been in washington for 37 years. how must sell at this stage. they came from ohio and keep this midwestern approach to issues come assertive basic simple questions that you would ask if you are buying a house, buying a car or train to lecture your daughter on what school to pick. set up a simple question from a logical question. these happening aren't being answered in afghanistan. questions such as, are these programs in buildings needed? have you asked the afghans if they want them? have you court made it but then at the other organizations working with the u.s. government or international community? have we designed them to meet any specific need that the afghans have? and have we designed them in such a way that they can be sustainable in the future? quite often we find the answers to these que
. lastly, director cordray, last night you made a call to bill cheney, talk to them about this. we really appreciate again. that call and the cooperation you've shown to us. as we try to work through all this. the last thing is, will this be published this afternoon, the final rule? [laughter] >> we are very hopeful it will be published this afternoon. >> heads are nodding. >> thank you. mary hunter. joe rogers? ed? >> good afternoon. it is indeed a pleasure to be here. my name is ed brown and am represent the maryland state naacp, and i would like to say on behalf of our membership, that the mortgage issue very adversely impacted our community. similar to congressman cummings, we had a number of workshops and hearings around the state, and i can't tell you how many stories i could relate to you about horror stories about people experience. so we appreciate his first that you are taking to make improvements in the status quo, but while the bright lights are shining and everybody is here, everything is well and good, but this is the first step. it's not a last step, and we are looking to i
mandates. states should be given increased flexibility to create efficiencies and achieve results. lastly, congress should not impose maintenance of effort provisions of states as a condition of receiving federal funding. in other words, it states receive federal cuts, washington should not demand the same level of service without providing the same level of funding. essentially, all of these points can and will be coming down to flexibility and partnership. we need the flexibility to take care of the unique needs of our citizens and the challenges of our states. what we do not need is a one-size-fits-all solution or more unfunded federal mandates passed on to our states. the need to be treated as partners, not underlings. we want to work to implement good public policy. as we told congressional leaders, reducing the deficit by shifting costs to the state is not indicative of the good partnership. whether it is deficit reduction or other pressing national issues, we feel the two principles will guide these relationships with the federal government and the state. the principles are the fle

. >> let me just lastly mention, you mentioned darfur in your opening comments. the humantarian crisis was so severe. we still have concerns in the southern and blue nile south sudan still has problems. burma where we had hope in november, there has not been progress made. i hope that you will make these areas where there is -- humanitarian crises a highest priority to try to protect the safety of the people that live in these areas. >> i will. i intend to do that. first of all the president, i think, will continue to -- with an appointment of the special envoy to the sudan, we just had princeton lyman, who's done a great job under tough circumstances. i was there myself during the course of their referendum on the independence. i have met with their president many times. i met not with bashir but people underneath him in the north. and my hope is that we can get the status of the number of components of the c.p.a. that were not fulfilled finally fulfilled. by nile, and others are human tragedy. the bombings are continuing. starvation taking place. displacement. and in some ways darfur
agitating the u.s. and its allies into conflict. and lastly, there is the issue of the size of their nukes. there is no indication that the north koreans have created a nuclear weapon small enough to ride on top of these rockets that. is a huge challenge that takes a lot of work. they are not there yet. that's one of the reasons many intelligence analysts are being looking at these very sharp words, wolf, as secretary panetta suggested, you have to be serious about it but it's probably just an empty threat at this point. >> good explanation, tom. thank you. >>> and joining us now, the abc news global affair's anchor, christiane amanpour. how credible are these threats coming out of north korea? >> they are credible as threats and they hope to make these a deterrent but when it comes to could they actually and do they intend to launch anything against the united states? the consensus is no. not only do they not have the ability to invade, but they don't have the ability on long-range missiles and they are not considered to have the ability to put a nuclear warhead on a missile. the problem,
in somalia. somalia has a long way to go but the fact that president is on was hit lastly, that our secretary of state formally announced the recognition of that government, this is inconceivable just a few years ago. i think again that's where we are at our best. not necessarily leading, supporting, training, equipping, helping in ways that the africans ask us to help. that's what we do best. >> good afternoon. i am with the institute for policy studies, and just really want to applaud the center for hosting this event, bring us together the week of an incredible inauguration and celebration of martin luther king day, to be able to talk about foreign policy. so i thank you for your vision. commander hamm, there's so many areas as she spoke that i thought i want to quibble on and question. i guess at the core of it when you talk about the state department giving at the 9 billion the department of defense giving 500 million to africa, it seems a bit disingenuous. primarily because the state department covers funds for private military contractors, that many would think are covered by the depar
to senator menendez talking about the motivation for the legislation. [video clip]>> lastly, as someone who is an advocate of making sure that our economy is strong as a result of immigration reform, and also that we preserve a core value of family unification. how do we do that in a way that is smart and promotes illegal immigration as opposed to having families divided for so long and then pressures on to make choices on becoming reunified. i believe we can take care of all of those issues. host: is that a good reason to push legislation forward? guest: i like that better than the political reason. some have cited we need immigration reform because republicans have not won elections but i do not think we should set our public policy on immigration on challenges we might have elect orally. the -- electoraly. we should set our agenda on what is the most fair way to deal with the challenges, as currently the system is broken. it is not working for anybody. it is not working in the urban immunities, and certainly not in the counties that i represent in eastern indiana. we need to keep clear g
to the administration. lastly, i will say that the administration has other people who are on their side, people like pastor coat who was in the gay movement and opening that up that they could turn to for the inaugural prayer. >> ari, let's talk a little bit about the vice president and his task force on guns right now. here's the question. he's obviously going to come up with his recommendations by tuesday. with every day that passes, since the newtown massacre, does the chances of real substantive gun control legislation fade, get weaker? >> i don't think so. i think newtown is so searing in people's minds that this has a longer lasting factor than most shootings previously. there was another shooting today, as you saw, wolf, and this one involved a shotgun. i think it still raises the question, do any of us know how to stop these shootings from taking place? are we going to ban shotguns now? like the sentiment is to ban assault rifles. i think we're still going to grapple with this. i hope it's balanced. i hope it's not just gun control and taking advantage of newtown. we do need to do something
